At Mazda, design and engineering work in harmony together to deliver the joy of driving and create a strong bond between car and driver. Born out of KODO Design, the all-new Mazda CX-5 is full of energy and movement and delivers better aerodynamics and improved performance and handling.
Soul Red Crystal is a vivid new paint colour with a depth and finish as beautiful as one achieved by a master craftsman. Accentuating the beauty of the car’s KODO Design, the new colour is extraordinarily vivid and full of energy.
Mazda’s innovative G‑Vectoring Control system makes steering and handling more accurate, refined and smooth. For ultimate control, i‑ACTIV All Wheel Drive is an on-demand system that monitors the road conditions with 27 sensors for 200 times a second to predict and give you excellent traction just when you need it.
Mazda’s approach to safety goes beyond world-class protection for you and your passengers. While you enjoy the drive, cameras and sensors give you confidence, identifying risks early to minimise the chance of accidents. The all-new Mazda CX-5 features the latest Mazda Radar Cruise Control (part of option pack at an addition cost) and multi-colour Active Driving Display (Platinum grade) displaying speed important information directly on the driver’s windshield to keep you informed and safe.
The Mazda CX-5 was always a decent enough SUV — good-looking, solid to drive, well-built and well-equipped — but it wasn’t without flaws.
It is a curious thing when you do this gig that sometimes expectations don’t reach the desired levels of, well, expectation. Other times, you get into a car and expect nothing and yet get more than you, er, expected.
Mazda has never delivered cars which dealt out a hand of cards which included a royal flush; but it always gave you at least a full house.
The new CX-5 is a good example: good looking to a fault, smart as a tack on the road and as handy as a small pot when it comes to the daily grind of school runs, family shopping and ferrying underage teams to distant and unfriendly fields.
